that local 911 operators have been overwhelmed getting 10,000 calls in half an hour. ten times the normal number. one of the most critical situations that they're dealing with right now involves a big hospital here in new york. that's the nyu langone medical center. 215 patients, even as we speak, from adult critical care, pediatric critical care, neonatal intensive care, all being evacuated out of that hospital, moved to nearby facilities because the backup generator at nyu went down. let's get a check of the latest. let's go back to nbc news meteorologist bill karins. bill, what have you got for us? >> these things are going to continue to develop through the night but all the big issues that were caused in the new york city area was because of the high tide, the historic, epic if you want to call it that high tide. the only reason they use epic is that's never happened before. we shattered the previous record high tide we had in 1960 with donna. that's why new yorksy we're talking so much about it, not because we're here. if it was any other city in the country this would have been a h

the later you change the rules before an election, the more pressure that puts on local elections officials to accommodate those rules. they have to publicize the hours, have the machines ready, the voters have to know when to vote. that's it the job of the elections board. ohio has had early voting for everyone since 2005. the secretary of state was already trying to get them to change from something they had been doing. now he's making it so they won't know what they will be able to do and whether they will go back to the way it used to work since 2005 or whether they will have shorter hours. he's making it so the local elections boards will not know any of those things until as late as possible. putting it on county officials less than a month before the election. this is nuts. this has not been a normal year for ohio elections boards. ohio republicans first tried to cut early voting in half. when they failed at half, the same three days when african-american churches like to car pool down to the polling place. the sunday before the election. nearly 100,000 people voted in those days. a

doughnuts to some local firefighters, ultimately. a few hours after that, there he was in richmond, virginia, firing up an -- look at the size of the crowd. an estimated crowd of 15,000 people who turned out on a thursday afternoon in richmond, virginia, to hear him speak. the president's final campaign appearance of the day came just a short time ago in cleveland, ohio. and once this swing state is done tonight it's not like this is it for the president in terms of its campaign blitz. the campaign announced joint rallies on monday with president obama and former president bill clinton in orlando, florida, in youngstown, ohio, and print william county, virginia. those will all be on monday. they're apparently going to keep up the sprint from there. in terms of the state of the race right now, we have new nbc news polling numbers out tonight. the new nbc news/marist poll shows in the great state of colorado the race right now is tied. and in nearby nevada, president obama is up by three points in the new nbc poll. new polls from the democratic leaning group ppp show in virginia president obam

came earlier that same day in an interview with an award-winning local report from flint, michigan. terry camp, and mr. camp introduced his interview like this. >> i wanted to ask him about the gun violence in our cities. cities like flint and saginaw. let's listen in, this did not end well. >> gun violence and gun policy have not been big issues in the presidential campaign thus far and that probably makes sense. the president's record is signing a bill that allowed people to carry guns in national parks and another allowing people to carry guns on amtrak. which might come in handy when you decide to go hunting in the quiet car. it's not been a policy focus of this it president. and because of that, it's not been contested ground in the presidential race thus far. despite that, though, this reporter really wanted to ask paul ryan about gun violence. and it makes sense. last year flint, michigan, was ranked the most violent city in the united states of america. today 70 miles south in detroit, police staged a rally telling people to enter of detroit at their own risk. police saying

is at the top of that pooped out website, the republican secretary of state, he received a letter from local election officials around his state. the colorado county clerk's association wrote to mr. gessler to sound an alarm over what they called a series of errors and oversights by his office. the clerk said they were not sure exactly how to print the ballots this year. they had not been advised of how to do that. they expressed concerns about the way a voter registration melee had been handled. they said they were quite worried about the online registration system that had lost hundreds of registrations because then what happens when the trusting would-be voter shows up at the polls thinking he or she registered but the system ate it. after the deadline, the clerks were facing a back log of 45,000 new registrations, many of them from the last day that you could register. in colorado, this is just the view from here, but your election system looks like kind of a mess this year. and it's not like we didn't see it coming. republican secretary of state scott gessler started making headlines la
